It's A BOY!!!

So we went in to get the baby checked out today. He looks healthy and very active. VERY ACTIVE! Oh, yes, I did say boy! Beth is a little disappointed because she wanted a baby girl to share her room. Eric is happy, and thinks we should name the baby "Gordon" from the Island of Sodor. (He picked Gordon after I told him there was no way we would call the baby Thomas.) Here is a profile shot.
Here is a shot of him stretching. You can see his feet braced against one side, and although it is hard to see in this picture, his hands are above his head pushing against the other side. (the dot of stuff you see above him is the cord.) This could get painful as he keeps growing.
We are all happy and healthy and ready this kid to get here. (I'm ready for Beth to stop trying to tickle the baby through my stomach.)

Beth's First Hair Cut

Well, it took me forever but I finally did it. Beth got her first hair cut last week. We cut about three and a half inches off the back but only about a quarter of an inch off the sides. Just to even things out.

Dang, who said she could grow up?

Odds and Ends

I am waaaaay behind on our posts, so I'll be playing catch-up over the next few weeks.

After we told the kids Mommy had a baby in her tummy, Beth insisted she had to have a baby, too. Hey, if I could pull off being that huge and that cute, I'd be happy!
Mom and Dad Alleman came up around conference time. We didn't get many pictures but here are two of my favorites. Grandpa reading Eric a story...
. . . and Grandma cuddling with Eric.
For Easter (more on that in a later post) we gave the kids Tangled. They LOVE it! Both kids get really emotionally involved in movies. At the reunion scene, Eric turned to me and said, "I think I'm going to cry!" He's such a sensitive little guy.
And here is Beth being herself. What more can I say?
